Christian Parenti in NYC

Alas, we’ll be out of town, but everyone without an excuse must go to this:

Tropic of Chaos
Christian Parenti in conversation with Vijay Prashad and David Harvey

Sponsored by the Center for Place, Culture and Politics
Co-sponsored by the Center for Humanities at the GC and The Brecht Forum

Monday, August 29, 2011 from 7-9 pm
The James Gallery
CUNY Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue @ 34th Street

In Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence (Nation Books; July 1, 2011), award-winning writer Christian Parenti argues that the new era of climate war has begun, intertwining environmental disasters, poverty, social inequality, and violence in the Global South. Parenti, historian Vijay Prashad and Marxist scholar David Harvey will discuss the historical legacy of Cold War militarism, neoliberal economic restructuring, and the convergent onset of climate change expressed as warfare, crime, repression, state failure, and a planet in peril.

  2. Sorry, Christian says it is the 29th, but it’s mislisted on The Center’s FB page and the Brecht Forum page.
